The HB guys are slammed this week and still working today on their day off. I am sure they will be up on here answering questions soon though.

As for the car; haven't driven mine yet but the build was awesome. One of if not the best cars I have ever built. I have built the Sworkz that everyone raves about being so durable (and it is), the D413 is even beefier and should be almost bullet proof.

My kit should be here tomorrow according to Fedex, so I'll try and get some build pics up as I go. Picked up some tires for it today and a few other odds and ends.

I might need to rework it with a different horn because I'm using both of the 'shorter' holes...

I'm planning on using the same servo and horn. That looks fine to me. What problem do you see with it?

I don't think there is any thing wrong~ I just see the book, and the other guys were using the tall/outer holes, and using the inners will be "faster" but with a little les resolution...

It's one of those little tiny things that will probably never get changed, because I'll just adjust/adapt to it.

Been working on the build the last couple of nights. Just electronics, tires and paint to go.

So far after running it for only a few days, I can say that you guys will be very happy with the results. The build was superb, second to none. No real issues at all.

I drove it last weekend at the stock nationals at OCRC. Placed 3rd. I could have done better, but it was stock 4WD...lol. And yes I did run a 37t pinion. I would have run a higher one but I could not track one down. And when asking around the pits, people would just look at me funny and wonder if I knew what I was doing.... LMAO

The drive is just how I remembered it from when I ran it while working at HPI/HB. The wait was worth it. My hat goes off to Torrance and Team Tessemann for all their hard work.

In case you wanted to watch paint dry...lol

I'll also be running mine in stock, Torrence has said that a 38t is the biggest that will fit, I'm hoping I can go bigger if possible, could you see a way something can be modified/massaged to allow bigger?, I've got 38,39,41 & 43 hoping I can go bigger lol

Im away at the 8th scale Enats right now. Once I get back I can let you know. My concern would be the integrity of the mount if you cut on it. Also its a rotating mount. if you clock it over too much you are just going backwards in the spacing. I think if you run it with a 38, and play with timing and such it could be just as fast as the other stockers out there. We just dont have any stock 4WD in southern cali, and will only run it in stock nationals once a year.

Can someone post pix of their hinge pin holders? I'd like to see how you have them positioned in the front...
